Pulp

 

a mixture of a finely ground (smaller than 1–0.5 mm) useful mineral and water. It is formed during such processes as the grinding of useful minerals before concentration, hydraulic mining, and hydraulic transport.

The density of pulp (the weight ratio between solid and liquid phases) and the number of particle-size fractions present determine the viscosity, which increases with an increase in density and in the number of particle-size fractions (in micron dimensions). The two factors also determine the sedimentation rate, which decreases with an increase in pulp density and with an increase in the fine particles present.


Pulp

 

the principal mass of the spleen. A distinction is made between red pulp, which consists of reticular tissue whose loops contain mostly red blood cells, and white pulp, which consists of reticular tissue with lymphoid cells.

In the present study one could argue that caries removal was too zealous, as eight teeth resulted in exposure (failing to enter the study) while, in some, close approximation to a pulp horn was visible at direct clinical view by the altered colour of the dentine over it.
Lilja J reported that in permanent molar teeth the highest concentration of neural elements are present in the pulp horns, with progressive decrease in the cervical and radicular of the pulp14 that was confirmed by lin J et al6 in their study that the early response was observed on low electric current at the area of cuspal tip as compared to the cervical regions of the molars.

Vitamin D deficiency causes rickets and dental changes that may be manifested as large pulp chambers with high pulp horns, enamel hypoplasia, and microexposures of pulp horns that result in abscesses.

A multivariate statistical analysis revealed that pulpal revascularization was more frequent in teeth with shorter distances from the apical foramen to the pulp horns. However, another study [Schwartz et al., 2002] revealed, pulpal healing was limited to the entrance of the pulp canal, and no significance was shown between pulpal healing and the storage medium, time or temperature.
Pulp chambers were enlarged, with pulp horns extending to the dentino-enamel junction.
